    Good eye. From 2002 for the Jubilee.

    Perfect for Paris.

    Love 'em, but since black is verbotten with odd jackets, don't tell me that you are going to wear monks with a suit.

    How come you didn't try to MTO midnight blue? With bunny fur lining?

    I would wear these with a blazer and grays, at night, but not with any other odd jacket, and not during the day.

    As to monks with suits, I do that all the time, and I intend to with these.

    I did not get them in blue because these were an impulse purchase, and because I am not part of England's Elite. Wearing blue shoes is like wearing a regimental tie: only if you belong.

    If you think you can fake your way in, try it. I am not that bold.

    I just received my Borrelli shoes from Gilt Groupe. They are quite lovely, although there is a mark of some kind on the right shoe (pictured below). I've never purchased a shoe that cost more than $100, so this will sound stupid...but: is this a normal blemish or cause for sending them back?
    Question will be, what did you pay & what where they marked as? AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST do you like them, and do they have and other pair they can trade you with (presuming you like them) For a brand new shoe, store bought I don't think any one here would take them at full price ...
